Today, December 5th, we just assisted to the bigger event in Hong Kong dedicated to Italian Wines

James Suckling organized a great wine tasting on December 4 and an elegant (but funny) gala dinner on December 5 at the Island Shangri-la Hotel.

Each winery attending was selected for its history of producing outstanding wines. In fact, all the wines poured during the event have outstanding reviews – 90 points or more.
